CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH 

Part One—The Profession of Faith

I Believe in God the Father—The Symbols of Faith

40. Why is the revelation of God's name important?

In  revealing  his  name,  God  makes  known  the  riches
contained in the ineffable mystery of his being. He alone is
from  everlasting  to  everlasting.  He  is  the  One  who
transcends the world and history. It is he who made heaven
and earth. He is the faithful God, always close to his people,
in  order  to  save  them.  He  is  the  highest  holiness,  “rich  in
mercy”  (Ephesians  2:4),  always  ready  to  forgive.  He  is  the
One  who  is  spiritual,  transcendent,  omnipotent,  eternal,
personal, and perfect. He is truth and love.

“God is the infinitely perfect being who is the most Holy

Trinity.”

(St Turibius of Montenegro)

41. In what way is God the truth?

God is Truth itself and as such he can neither deceive nor be
deceived.  He  is  “light,  and  in  him  there  is  no  darkness”  (1
John 1:5). The eternal Son of God, the incarnation of wisdom,
was sent into the world “to bear witness to the Truth” (John
18:37).

42. In what way does God reveal that he is love?

God revealed himself to Israel as the One who has a stronger
love  than  that  of  parents  for  their  children  or  of  husbands
and wives for their spouses. God in himself “is love” (1 John
4: 8.16), who gives himself completely and gratuitously, who
“so  loved  the  world  that  he  gave  his  only  Son  so  that  the
world might be saved through him”

(Jn 3:16-17)

. By sending his

Son  and  the  Holy  Spirit,  God  reveals  that  he  himself  is  an
eternal exchange of love.

43. What does it mean to believe in only one God?

To believe in the one and only God involves coming to know
his  greatness  and  majesty.  It  involves  living  in  thanksgiving
and  trusting  always  in  him,  even  in  adversity.  It  involves
knowing  the  unity  and  true  dignity  of  all  human  beings,
created  in  his  image.  It  involves  making  good  use  of  the
things which he has created.

44. What is the central mystery of Christian faith and life?

The central mystery of Christian faith and life is the mystery
of  the  Most  Blessed  Trinity.  Christians  are  baptized  in  the
name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

45. Can the mystery of the Most Holy Trinity be known by

the light of human reason alone?

God has left some traces of his trinitarian being in creation
and  in  the Old Testament  but  his  inmost  being  as  the  Holy
Trinity is a mystery which is inaccessible to reason alone or
even to Israel’s faith before the Incarnation of the Son of God
and the sending of the Holy Spirit. This mystery was revealed
by Jesus Christ and it is the source of all the other mysteries.

46. What did Jesus Christ reveal to us about the mystery

of the Father?

Jesus  Christ  revealed  to  us  that  God  is  “Father”,  not  only
insofar  as  he  created  the  universe  and  the  mankind,  but
above  all  because  he  eternally  generated  in  his  bosom  the
Son who is his Word, “ the radiance of the glory of God and
the very stamp of his nature”

(Hebrews 1:3)

.

47. Who is the Holy Spirit revealed to us by Jesus Christ?

The Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity.
He  is God,  one  and  equal  with  the  Father  and  the Son.  He

“proceeds  from  the  Father”

(Jn15:26)

 who  is  the  principle

without  a  principle  and  the  origin  of  all  trinitarian  life.  He
proceeds also from the Son

(Filioque)

by the eternal Gift which

the Father makes of him to the Son. Sent by the Father and
the  Incarnate  Son,  the  Holy  Spirit  guides  the  Church  “to
know all truth”

(Jn 16:13)

.

48. How does the Church express her trinitarian faith?

The  Church  expresses  her  trinitarian  faith  by  professing  a
belief  in  the  oneness  of  God  in  whom  there  are  three
Persons:  Father,  Son,  and  Holy  Spirit.  The  three  divine
Persons  are  only  one  God  because  each  of  them  equally
possesses  the  fullness  of  the  one  and  indivisible  divine
nature. They are really distinct from each other by reason of
the  relations  which  place  them  in  correspondence  to  each
other. The Father generates the Son; the Son is generated by
the Father; the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father and the
Son.

49. How do the three divine Persons work?

Inseparable in their one substance, the three divine Persons
are  also  inseparable  in  their  activity.  The  Trinity  has  one
operation,  sole  and  the  same.  In  this  one  divine  action,
however,  each  Person  is  present  according  to  the  mode
which is proper to him in the Trinity.

“O  my  God,  Trinity  whom  I  adore...grant  my  soul
peace; make it your heaven, your beloved dwelling,
and the place of your rest. May I never abandon you
there,  but  may  I  be  there,  whole  and  entire,
completely vigilant in my faith, entirely adoring, and
wholly  given  over  to  your  creative  action.”

(Blessed

Elizabeth of the Trinity)

FEAST OF THE WEEK

FeastOUR  LADY  OF  GADALUPE,  PATRON  OF  THE
AMERICAS
—Date: Tues,  Dec  12:  The  feast  in  honour  of
Our  Lady  of  Guadalupe  goes  back  to  the  16th  century.
Chronicles of that period tell us the story.

A  poor  Indian  named  Cuauhtlatohuac  was  baptized  and
given the name Juan Diego. He was a 57-year-old widower,
and lived in a small village near Mexico City. On Saturday
morning December 9, 1531, he was on his way to a nearby
barrio to attend Mass in honour of Our Lady.

Juan  was  walking  by  a  hill  called Tepeyac  when  he  heard
beautiful music like the warbling of birds. A radiant cloud
appeared,  and  within  it  stood  an  Indian  maiden  dressed
like  an Aztec  princess. The  lady  spoke  to  him  in  his  own
language  and  sent  him  to  the  bishop  of  Mexico,  a
Franciscan named Juan de Zumarraga. The bishop was to
build a chapel in the place where the lady appeared.

Eventually the bishop told Juan to have the lady give him a
sign. About this same time Juan’s uncle became seriously
ill. This led poor Juan to try to avoid the lady. Nevertheless
the  lady  found  Juan,  assured  him  that  his  uncle  would
recover, and provided roses for Juan to carry to the bishop
in his cape or tilma.

On December 12, when Juan Diego opened his tilma in the
bishop’s  presence,  the  roses  fell  to  the  ground,  and  the
bishop sank to his knees. On the tilma where the roses had
been  appeared  an  image  of  Mary  exactly  as  she  had
appeared at the hill of Tepeyac.

Reflection: Mary’s appearance to Juan Diego as one of his
people is a powerful reminder that Mary–and the God who
sent  her–accept  all  peoples.  In  the  context  of  the
sometimes rude and cruel treatment of the Indians by the
Spaniards,  the  apparition  was  a  rebuke  to  the  Spaniards
and  an  event  of  vast  significance  for  the  indigenous
population. While a number of them had converted before
this  incident,  they  now  came  in  droves.  According  to  a
contemporary  chronicler,  nine  million  Indians  became
Catholic in a very short time. In these days when we hear
so much about God’s preferential option for the poor, Our
Lady of Guadalupe cries out to us that God’s love for and
identification with the poor is an age-old truth that stems
from the Gospel itself.

                                                                               !6

This  Sunday’s  Readings:  Isaiah  40:1-5,  9-11;  Psalm
85:9-14; 2 Peter 3:8-14; Mark 1:1-8

Our  God  is  coming.  The  time  of  exile  –  the  long
separation  of  humankind  from  God  due  to  sin  –  is
about  to  end. This  is  the  good  news  proclaimed  in
today’s liturgy.

Isaiah in today’s First Reading promises Israel’s future
release  and  return  from  captivity  and  exile.  But  as
today’s  Gospel  shows,  Israel’s  historic  deliverance
was  meant  to  herald  an  even  greater  saving  act  by
God – the coming of Jesus to set Israel and all nations
free  from  bondage  to  sin,  to  gather  them  up  and
carry them back to God.

God sent an angel before Israel to lead them in their
exodus towards the promised land

(see Exodus 23:20)

. And

He  promised  to  send  a  messenger  of  the  covenant,
Elijah,  to  purify  the  people  and  turn  their  hearts  to
the  Father  before  the  day  of  the  Lord

(see  Malachi  3:1,

23-24)

.

John  the  Baptist  quotes  these,  as  well  as  Isaiah’s
prophecy,  to  show  that  all  of  Israel’s  history  looks

forward to the revelation of Jesus. In Jesus, God has
filled in the valley that divided sinful humanity from
himself.  He  has  reached  down  from  heaven  and
made  His  glory  to  dwell  on  earth,  as  we  sing  in
today’s Psalm.

He has done all this, not for humanity in the abstract,
but for each of us. The long history of salvation has
led  us  to  this  Eucharist,  in  which  our  God  again
comes and our salvation is near. And each of us must
hear in today’s readings a personal call. Here is your
God, Isaiah says. He has been patient with you, Peter
says in today’s Epistle.

Like Jerusalem’s  inhabitants  in  the Gospel,  we  have
to go out to Him, repenting our sins, all the laziness
and  self-indulgence  that  make  our  lives  a  spiritual
wasteland.  We  have  to  straighten  out  our  lives,  so
that everything we do leads us to Him.

Today,  let  us  hear  the  beginning  of  the  gospel  and
again  commit  ourselves  to  lives  of  holiness  and
devotion.

“…He Will Baptize You With The Holy Spirit”

John

CATHOLIC ANSWERS

www.catholic.com

WHY HUMANS ARE NOT PARASITES

Question
I was told people are just parasites on the Earth, including
babies in the womb. How should I respond to this?
Answer
A parasite is generally considered to be an organism that
lives off another organism of a different type (the host) to
the detriment of the host.

A baby in the womb is not a parasite because:

•The  baby  is  of  the  same  species  as  the  host  (the
mother). It is to the advantage of the human species that
this  relationship  exist. Therefore,  the  relationship  is  not  a
detriment.

•Human  mothers  have  a  placenta  that  shares  nutrients
with  the  baby. This  is  natural  and  normal  and  shows  that
the  relationship  between  a  mother  and  baby  is  symbiotic
rather than parasitic.

•The  placenta  is  produced  by  the  mother's  body  for  the
purpose  of  nurturing  a  baby.  The  human  body  does  not
produce anything to purposely feed parasites.

•It is a rare condition in which a mother's immune system
attacks the baby as if it were a parasite. If the baby were a
parasite, this condition would be the norm rather than the
exception.

•A  host-parasite  relationship  is  to  the  benefit  of  one  and
the  detriment  of  the  other,  but  the  body  of  the  mother
cooperates with the body of the baby during pregnancy.

•Parasites come from the outside the host; a baby comes
from inside the mother.

As to whether humans are parasites of the Earth, that too
is  a  mischaracterization  of  the  definition  of  a
parasite.  Human  beings  are  not  inherently  dangerous  to
the  Earth.  Human  beings  can  live  without  being
detrimental to their environment. If we consider any living
thing that takes anything to survive from some other living
thing, then every living thing would be a parasite. Animals
eat  grass,  animals  eat  other  animals;  if  the  balance  of
nature gets out of wack in a certain environment, then one
species could overwhelm the others.

The fact that human beings can live in harmony with the
environment and can actually help the environment means
that  we  are  not  parasites  in  the  true  sense  of  the

environment, but that would be a sinful choice and not a
necessity of survival for the human race.
